Conference Site:

The Workshop will take place at the Guest House of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences on the Black Sea coast near Varna. Varna is Bulgaria's third largest city and main naval port. The Guest House is situated between two of Bulgaria's best coastal resorts "St. Konstantin and Elena" (formerly "Druzhba") and "Golden Sands". The formal address of the Guest House is:
Resort "Chaika", bus-stop "Journalist", Guest-House of BAS - to see this in Bulgarian click here.

Travel information:

The most convenient way to travel from abroad is by plane to Varna airport. In June there will be many direct flights to Varna from Europe and daily regular flights from Sofia (Bulgaria's capital). The latter is connected with Europe's major cities by daily regular flights. Travel by train is to Varna railway station. The airport (railway station) is 20 km (10 km) from the Conference site with direct bus connection - see map. The nearest bus stop to the Guest House is called "Journalist" as mentioned in the address above. The Guest House is 50m uphill from this stop. It is a stop for buses Nos: 9,109,209,309,409 (though only No 9 is shown on the map!). Most useful are: 409 which is a direct bus from Varna airport to "Golden Sands", 309 which is a direct bus from Varna railway station to "Golden Sands".
